Join us at 3 pm to hear author-illustrator DANIEL SALMIERI read from his delightful book BEAR AND WOLF. 

Perfect for families and children ages 4-8.

Bear and Wolf become unlikely companions one winter's evening when they discover each other out walking in the falling snow. They're young and curious, slipping easily into friendship as they amble along together, seeing new details in the snowy forest. Together they spy an owl overhead, look deep into the frozen face of the lake, and contemplate the fish sleeping below the surface. Then it's time to say goodbye: for Bear to go home and hibernate with the family and for Wolf to run with the pack. In Daniel Salmieri's beautifully rendered story of friendship and the subtle rhythm of life, we are open to the world and to each other. In the story Bear and Wolf meet each other not with frightened hostility but with openhearted, compassionate curiosity. Their encounter is a shared question mark regarded with mutual goodwill and concern for rather than fear of the other.

Daniel Salmieri grew up drawing ninja turtles, fighter jets and 90s Knicks players. He has since gone on to create illustrations for award-winning children's books and the New York Times. Daniel lives with his wife Sophia and their dog Ronni in Brooklyn, NY, where he was born and raised. His book with author Adam Rubin, Dragons Love Tacos, is a New York Times best-selling phenomenon, was an Indies Next selection, and a New York Times notable book. Bear and Wolf (Enchanted Lion Books) is his debut as author/illustrator.
